I am pleased to be a faculty member for this ABA-CLE ethics teleconference on Tuesday, July 28, 2009. In these still-difficult times, it is more important than ever to be confident of the ethical boundaries when it comes to client conflicts, fee arrangements, and new marketing ventures.
In this teleconference you will learn:
- About billing issues to get your fees paid and what to do when the client does not pay and when you can, and when you must, withdraw;
- About marketing in new ways including e-newsletters, blogging, and social networking and the ethical issues each new marketing venue creates;
- About steering clear of conflicts, including not taking clients where there is a conflict of interest and avoiding those clients you know would not be a good fit with the firm;
- About career changes and the issues that leaving a firm, joining a new firm, or going solo create.
Join Peter Geraghty, Director of the ABA's ETHICSearch, Chicago, IL; Mary Robinson, Ethics and Professional Responsibility Consulting, Downers Grove, IL; Lynda Shely, of The Shely Firm, PC, Scottsdale, AZ; and me for a practical and informative discussion of the ethical issues affecting many lawyers today.
